Biological Outcomes of this project: Expected outcomes include: 1) Increased abundance of larvae from outplanting adults; 2) Percent viabiltiy of lamprey eggs deposited in nests; 3) Location of spawning adults in the Umatilla River; 4) Population estimate for adult lampreys entering Umatilla River and at John Day Dam; 5) Population estimate of numbers of metamorphosed lampreys leaving the Umatilla River; 6) Concentration of pheromone in the Umatilla and John Day Rivers; 7) Knowledge about the duration of Pacific lampreys ability to detect pheromone and behavioral assays to show preferences to smell; 8) GIS based coverages regarding lamprey larval habitat preferences and assess utility of general habitat surveys to predict larval habitat potential; 9) Culture techniques and release stratagies for lampreys synthesized into a document; and 10) Ability to age lampreys using statoliths. Ultimately, the expected outcome is reestablishment of self sustaining numbers of Pacific lampreys in the Umatilla River.
Biological Data: Larval densities collected in forty-two sites during 1998 and 1999 (baseline) in the Umatilla River will be used to show increases due to our adult outplants. Samples of eggs taken from lamprey redds will be staged for development for calculating percent viability. Location of spawning sites will be data logged using geographical information system (GIS). Adult lampreys captured at Three Mile Falls Dam and John Day Dam by portable assessment traps will be used to estimate total population of lampreys entering the Umatilla River and numbers in Columbia River. Metamorphosed lampreys captured near the mouth of the Umatilla River will be marked and released for recapture to generate data on numbers of outmigrants. Concentration of Petromyzonol sulfate in the Umatilla River will provide baseline data to compare through time after increases in larvae occur. GIS layers including temperature, gradient, substrate, larval densities, floodplain, geomorphology data analysis for developing a model to predict larval distribution. Culture techniques of lampreys gained from USGS and Finland will culminate existing knowledge for a report in 2001. Aging techniques will be used to assess growth in the Umatilla River after adult outplant treatments.

% change from forecast 11.1%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The increase is in part due to expanded need for travel/vehicles to accomplish increased tasks. The lamprey project currently has one GSA vehicle. This is inadequate to address the necessary project tasks listed above. We are in the initial stages of implementing the lamprey restoration plan for the Umatilla River which has added more monitoring and evaluation. We are working to accomplish many new objectives and tasks to evaluate the outplanting adults in the Umatilla River.


Reason for change in scope

Finalization of the Restoration plan for Pacific lampreys in the Umatilla River in 1999 identified additional necessary monitoring and evaluation tasks that were not identified when initial FY 2001 Budget projection was made in 1998. Additional tasks now proposed include; 2abc, 3abcd,

Additional tasks now proposed include; 2abc ($45,325), 3abcd ($66,372). The MainSys SRT has flagged these new tasks to insure that they have been technically reviewed. A lamprey master plan was recently completed and technical review may have been completed in that forum.
